Time Keeps on Slippin', Slippin', Slippin' Into the Future....

I'm glad I didn't scare you away after that last post. I wasn't in a good Place at the time. Could you tell? We all have our ups and downs, I suppose. Fortunately, like most all things, it didn't last very long -- thanks to lots of help from loving, patient, kind friends -- and a forgiving, merciful Father in Heaven. He always knows what I need and when.

I don't know how to explain the passage of time anymore! It seems like I wake up one morning and months have passed without any recollection of what happened even yesterday. What's up with that? Mama used to say, "It's a sign of getting old." Just this once, I'm not going to believe her ;)

I've been wonderfully busy with my little growing business of baking and selling. People seem to really enjoy (and I mean REALLY ENJOY) homemade stuff so I've been selling tons of it. My two hands can't seem to produce enough to keep my ovens busy. It's all good, just tiring and a bit overwhelming at times. We are thankful for the extra income, although, the laundry and dishes pile up a lot faster than they used to. Everything waits on me to have a break from baking, then I get caught up. And, it starts all over again.....

I've had lots of opportunities to watch the sun come up from my kitchen window. It's a glorious sight to witness that part of Heavenly Father's creation. It is such a blessing to take in the radiant bursts of color surrounding the first light of day on our side of this beautiful world. There is no doubt in my mind that we are only a small (yet important) part in a grand tapestry that makes up Eternity. Evidences of this truth are all around us. Taking the time and having the desire to notice the miracles and abundance of life can bring much joy to this grateful child of God.

Thanks for stopping by.

When I think of blessings, I always think of you. Love you with my heart.
